I Am Human

Yes, you might have labels for me,
But it is from your ignorance or your laziness
And never will be my limitation.

You named me for the things you do not know
Or for the things you are too lazy too seek.

I am not gay because I had sex with a man
And I am bi because I had sex with a woman and a man.
I am just a human who had sex.

Will you say I am a guitarist
Because I know how to play one song with guitar?
Or will you say to the bird he is a tweeter
Because daily he tweets?

Surely you will not,
A bird is a bird,
And I am human

If it is easier for you to put me in a category
And conjure illusions of what and who I am
And predicts my future for what I did in the past
Then you, though welcome, I do not seek.

But if it is you who have a clean slate of mind
Willing and ready to discover
The weaknesses and greatness of my humanity,
Come walk with me in this path for growth.
Let us ease each other’s burden.
And lift each other up,
And soar toward heaven.

Ang Kapalaran ni Miko Ayon sa Manghuhula

Sometime last January, hinulaan ako ni Mrs. Alminaza,

“Dahil Water ka at Earth ang taon ngaun,
Hindi magiging maganda ang love life mo.
Laging makikialam ang career.”

At tumpak ang hula nya.  Dahil February 2009, pinadala ako sa Japan ng company ko ngaun.  At sunod-sunod na business trip for the whole six months.  Ayus ang career, it’s really taking off.  But lovelife?  Zero.  November na ngaun, at malabo naman ang mga prospect.

During lunch today - Nov 18 2009 - I asked again the Fortune Teller.

“Dahil water ka at metal next year,
Makakakita ka ng success sa hahanapin mo.
At tandaan mo tong sasabihin ko,
Apat na taon kang mamamayagpag
Basta’t maging honest ka lang at wag maging negative.”

Wahahaha!!! May ganun!  Xet!  Sobra naman akong natuwa.  Honesty and Positivity?  Well, yakang-yaka yun.

In preparation for my upcoming lovelife next year, hinihingi ko sa Universe ang Guy na kukulitin ko for four years (and hopefully for life) hehehe.  Eto ang hinahanap ko:

AYOKO ng maarte at reklamador.
GUSTO ko ng maisasama ko sa bundok, mapapahiga ko sa banig at mapapakain ng tuyo o sardinas.

AYOKO ng tamad at walang trabaho. wala akong pakialam sa sasahudin nya,
GUSTO ko lang, pag nakita kami ng ibang tao, walang mag-iisip na may money involved.

AYOKO ng astig or mas maangas sa akin.
GUSTO ko ung hindi masyadong halata, pero he knows he is the "lady" in the relationship.

AYOKO ng malaki ang katawan.
GUSTO ko yung mejo payat. yung tipo na pag-nagkasauntukan kami, hindi ako dehado. (i'm not violent, contingency plans lang, hehehe).

and finally,

AYOKO ng sobrang gwapo. hindi ako kampante.
GUSTO ko yung pwede kong maiwan sa gimikan ng walang masyadong makikipag-flirt sa kanya.

Yan na Universe.  Mukang pang X’mas Gift ang hinihingi ko, pero kahit late, mahihintay ko.  Hehehe
